's not that implausible when you think about new jersey's republican party. to be honest, if chris christie took him under his wing, he might actually have a chance. the only kind of conservative ideas he has really come on national security issues and debt and deficit, apparently. but new jersey's republican party is much different. think scott brown, massachusetts, to some extent. he might be able to win in new jersey, but certainly doesn't fit in in the u.s. senate. but maybe the first senator to have a chair thrown at him on the floor because the climate relationships are going in that direction, howie. >> what is it -- >> he's a great guy, by the way. i love geraldo. >> i like him on his radio show. is he a plausible politician? on that point, what it with talk show hosts because he's hardly the first one who have pretty successful careers and then they get the bug and muse on the air about wanting to run for high, political office? >> i think that they see, you know, how easy it is and how doing a talk show. you show up, you recite talking points and you yell at your colleagues and the audience and
, it is a slippery slope, we need to be careful with it. >> on to question two, new jersey governor chris christie jokes about his weight. president clintonen's former doctor says she fears christie will die in office, because of his obesity. christie later addressed the problem. >> if you talk to anybody in this room that has struggled with weight, what they will tell you, that every week, every month, every year, there is a plan. and i'm making the best effort i can. and sometimes i'm successful and other times i'm not. >> let's be on e., he's not going to be president, if he's obese, the question now, what should chris christie do about his weight. ron? >> i think this could be -- he could turn this into an advantage. if he put himself on a diet and exercise program that became inspirational to americans, that could help him run for president, as he slowly worked off the weight. and sure, there would be problems and slip ups like he is talking about. it would humanize him. i'm not talking about him making him a republican richard simmons, but it could be inspirational. >> that's a scary image i

"l.a. times" is reporting there are fresh tracks on big bear, perhaps near where that pickup truck is burning. how -- you have tracked so many people like this. how can dorner survive the night? >> well, he's trained for this. he's not only america's most wanted, he's america's most armed and dangerous. and he's trained to be a survivalist. that remote area up there in the dark will be his ally. he can set up shop up there and he'll be very hard to catch in the dark. and if he has the weapons he says he has, if he has a .50-caliber rifle, he'll be able to shoot peo
with republicans. >> he's pretty moderate republican. in new jersey, chris christie is the republican governor of new jersey. i assume geraldo would have a shot. >> i think he would. there's a lot of hispanics in northern new jersey. as someone who has always advocated to have more candidates, i would welcome his participation. i think he would bring flair to a race we thought would be ho-hum. there's a lot happening between frank lautenberg and cory booker. you have chris christie with a popularity in the 70s. i also reached out to the rnc and they have reached out to geraldo rivera's camp and would be welcome to help him in any way that they would help any other candidate. they have reached out and they think that he's seriously considering it. >> it s it appropriate for cory booker to say that he's interested in the seat even before frank lautenberg said whether he's going to seek re-election? >> he's truly someone that i admire and would love to see continue the senate but cory booker has to see what his future plans are. he's been outstanding mayor of newark. he's a great public citizen.
